Hi Mike. Like Hexy said, this is a lean problem. This could be the system trying to compensate for an air leak after the MAF adn throwing the lean codes. I would look there before going under the...

You screwed up TacoBuster. When he asked how you got the money, you should have told him from servicing his mother the other night. That would have shut him up.

It's like that one, Mrmaico. But, instead of purchasing the single wrench from Amazon for $17, you can get the 5 piece set from Harbor Freight for $27. I am hard on tools and I have large sets of...
